AN award-winning play featuring two Halesowen and Cradley Heath actors is set to make an 11-show run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

‘Bert’, a play which revolves around the topic of suicide by Wolverhampton writer David Pitt, stars Jonathan Hipkiss and David Francis.

It tells the story of John (Francis), who is seated in his fume filled car waiting for eternal nothingness before Michael (Hipkiss) appears. Is he an angel or is he just part of the journey to nothingness?

Looking at life, love, death, and that inner part of us that we all hate – our inner ‘Bert’.

After claiming the title of ‘Best Original Play’ at the Worcester Theatre Festival, ‘Bert’ will be part of PBH’s Free Fringe in Edinburgh, running from August 11 to 18 at 5.30pm in Bar-Bados.

There will also be additional performances of ‘Bert’ at Bar-Bados on August 19 at 6.45pm, August 20 at 3pm and August 21 at 8pm.
